Hey Stuart, are there any good web sites you could direct me to so I can learn more about this "in the works" technology? Also, how long do you think it will be before 1080p HDTV's will be obsolete? You can email me directly at if you wish.

James Cameron is pushing 2K 48P as a new HD standard. He did testing and to the human eye 2K 48P looks the same as 4K 24P. Movie Theaters will have 4K and we will get 2K.

I saw a few 4K displays at CES last week and indeed they do look great. Your 2 year prediction is overly ambitious however. 2K HDTV has been around for 10 years now and only 60% of Americans have one in their house. Of those 60%, about 60% are actually watching HD content. Broadcasters will have to invest in all new cameras and delivery equipment for 4K TV distribution. That will take many years to implement. Until then, we'll all enjoy Blu-ray disc and 1080i TV.

Since you work in the industry, I'm sure you realize that the resolution of 35mm film is only slightly higher than 1080p video so the realized resolution gain from 2K to 4K on most films will be very subtle. People aren't going to pay a premium for a subtle gain. For many consumers, the difference between 480p and 1080p is too subtle to justify the cost. So the transition to 4K will be a slow one.

I'm patiently waiting for the day when they can finally beam a film directly into my brain so I won't need fancy discs, a player or a TV. Who's with me?

The American consumer is very slow to react to the new display content available-whether it be Blu-ray or 1080P Displays.
Obviously those in the know see the huge improvement from Standard DVD to Blu-ray and players are down to almost $80.00 in many Big Box stores, yet only 25-to 30% of the consumers had upgraded at least their DVD Player to Blu-ray let alone to 1080P displays. How can anyone say Blu-ray is dead ???? Which BOZO stated that ???
